Halloween has always been, and will always be, my favorite holiday. From carving pumpkins and having a completely valid reason to spend a whole day watching horror films to trick or treating and taking a deep breath of that crisp autumnal air on the first night you can see your breath, October is simply awesome.
To usher in the coolest holiday of them all, I am thrilled to announce MANGLED MATTERS will be hosting a 4-week “Haunted Memories” blog series where I have been fortunate enough to wrangle up some of the coolest and most creative minds on the indie horror scene to discuss some of their favorite Halloween topics.
Then, on Halloween night, I will be introducing a very unique short story to the world- a story created by these seventeen amazing people and myself to help make it easier to decide to sleep with a night light on!
The four topics will go as follows (in parenthesis you will find who will be chatting about each topic!):
Week 1 (October 8): Your Favorite Memory of Halloween.
(Steve Mezo, Sarah Sigler, Char Hardin, John Ginder, Hannah Neurotica, Barb Breese, Inker Bella, Kevin Spencer)
Week 2 (October 15): Your Favorite Horror Novel.
(Lori R. Lopez, Elizabeth Kolodziej, Char Hardin, Kayleigh Frost, Hannah Neurotica, Jason Thorson)
